November 28, 2012

EnergyDeck has joined Utilidex's utilidex50 offering. Utilidex aims to deliver EnergyDeck integrated with their inMotion solution both in the UK as well as the Australian and New Zealand markets. inMotion significantly reduces the integration challenge for energy retailers and allows them to deploy value added services to their customers within a short time frame.

“Our vision for the utilidex50 is to attract innovative offerings that can easily plug into the utilidex platform,” commented Richard Brys, CEO, “We want to attract high calibre companies into the space, allowing them to deliver their innovations and ideas to the wider energy community and in particular to utilities who wish to adapt their business models and offerings. EnergyDeck is a great fit for this initiative. Led by a high calibre management team, EnergyDeck has a vision to truly re-shape the way customers interact with their energy consumption to significantly reduce costs and their carbon footprint. We support EnergyDeck wholeheartedly in this endeavour and want our utility customers and their end customers to benefit from the offering.”

New UI, Better Dashboard and High-Frequency Meter Capabilities

Benjamin Kott

October 08, 2012

We've been keeping busy over the summer (if that's what you want to call it) and added a host of new features and upgrades to the EnergyDeck platform which we're excited to share today!

New EnergyDeck dashboard

The first change you will notice is a new and improved UI, resulting in a much cleaner and more focused interface. But the changes aren't just cosmetic and we've made sure to improve accessibility as well, e.g. of the visualisation options in the navigator and charts.

EnergyDeck now imports Green Button data

Green Button logo

We're pleased to announce that our smart importer has just become even smarter, and now also understands Green Button data.

Green Button is a US based effort to make energy data more accessible and actionable for consumers.

From the official website at http://www.greenbuttondata.org

Green Button is an industry-led effort that responds to a White House call-to-action: provide electricity customers with easy access to their energy usage data in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format via a "Green Button" on electric utilities' website. Green Button is based on a common technical standard developed in collaboration with a public-private partnership supported by the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology. Voluntary adoption of a consensus standard by utilities across the Nation allows software developers and other entrepreneurs to leverage a sufficiently large market to support the creation of innovative applications that can help consumers make the most of their energy usage information.

Less Hot Air: More Measuring and Managing

Benjamin Kott

July 06, 2012

From Jonathon Porritt's blog: http://www.jonathonporritt.com/blog/less-hot-air-more-measuring-and-managing

"Forum for the Future has ended up running one of the first and still one of the biggest initiatives helping organisations reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint.

The West of England Carbon Challenge was set up in 2009. There are now 130 public and private sector organisations signed up to the Challenge, accounting for over 129,000 employees – this is about 25% of the West of England’s workforce.

All organisations are asked to sign up to an average annual cut of 2.5% in emissions for four years – to reach a total of at least 10% by 2012. They have to make a Director-level commitment and submit all their energy data on a regular basis.

Perhaps one of the most important things about WECC is the level of the support people get – most voluntary sign-up schemes just leave people to their own devices once they’ve ticked the box.

We also provide an opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other. This sounds easy, but it doesn’t happen without a great deal of encouragement. To help with that, we partnered with a great little organisation called EnergyDeck, which provides the software for all the organisations to benchmark themselves and with others around the world.

Not only is it simple to use for participants and for ourselves – providing all the data we need in a standardised and comparable format – but it also helps build the WECC community.

WECC celebrated its Third Year on Monday night, with special Awards for nine organisations (in both the public and private sectors) which have achieved a 10% or more reduction between 2010 and 2011.

Truly inspirational – check out all the details on www.westofenglandcarbonchallenge.org/2012/07/our-2012-carbon-champions/"


EnergyDeck selected by Forum for the Future to power West of England Carbon Challenge

Launched by Forum for the Future in 2009, the West of England Carbon Challenge (WECC) today supports more than 100 businesses, public and third sector organisations in Bristol and Bath on their path to reduce carbon emissions. It challenges participants to commit to making an annual cut in emissions for four years to reach a cumulative total of at least 10% by 2012/13. Members receive advice, tools and practical support to measure, manage and reduce their CO2 emissions.

WECC participants now get free access to a Community version of EnergyDeck. It allows members to track up to 5 "meters" (i.e., data input sources) and access selected advanced features. Further, by signing up to the WECC group on EnergyDeck, participants can compare themselves against aggregate peer benchmarks and view savings measures (fully anonymised) implemented by others in the group. Forum for the Future - as the WECC group administrator - can easily view, analyse and aggregate the consumption data submitted by members in a single account.
